"This vehicle was close to a Viacom building which owns MTV and Comedy Central," Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.), told CNN. "And you have the whole issue with South Park, which Islamic terrorists were threatening to have retribution for."
New York police commissioner Ray Kelly told reporters Sunday that investigators haven't ruled out the possibility Viacom, a couple blocks from the car bomb, was a target because of the animated comedy episode. "We certainly wouldn't rule it out," Kelly said.
The Weekly goes on to state that according to Police, there have been no specific threats reported to Viacom's offices in Santa Monica.
